Capitol Chat - There are three single-subject tax proposals bouncing around the Capitol - on oil, soda and tobacco - and our Capitol Bureau Chief Ben Adler is in the bureau to give us a rundown in this week's Capitol Chat. We'll also hear the latest on Governor Brown's prison plan, which is due today.
"Oleander Girl" - Author Chitra Divakaruni is returning to Sacramento with her latest novel, "Oleander Girl." Divakaruni was last on Insight in October 2012 to talk about her novel "One Amazing Thing," which had been selected as Sacramento State's One Book novel. The author will participate in a fund-raiser for the Sacramento Public Library Foundation on Friday.
The Humor Times - The Humor Times, a monthly political humor publication and website, is celebrating 22 years in the business with a concert this weekend by the Capitol Steps. We'll talk with James Israel about the publication and how he's been able to stay afloat for more than two decades.
Sound Advice: Classical - Capital Public Radio's classical morning host Kent Teeters is our guide for this week's Sound Advice. Beth talked with Kent yesterday, and they started with one of NPR's favorite pianists and host of "From the Top," Christopher O'Riley.
